Collections in Conversation: “Yes, this is my album”: Victorian Collections of Scraps, Signatures, and Seaweed (digital exhibit opening event) Online

“Yes, this is my album”: Victorian Collections of Scraps, Signatures, and Seaweed is a new digital exhibit, curated by Elizabeth Bassett, featuring Victorian-era scrapbooks and albums held at UVic Libraries Special Collections and University Archives. Alongside the showcased albums, the exhibit provides a historical overview of the Victorian pastime of collecting things to display inside of books. Drawing from Victorian-era manuals, the exhibit focuses on the history and construction of traditional scrapbooks, autograph albums, and seaweed albums. During this talk, Bassett will introduce the exhibit with a virtual tour and a discussion of Victorian album-making practices.
